Men’s leggings, meggings, tights, compression pants, dive skins… whatever you like to call them, they’re engineered specifically for the fellas and built to protect watermen from sunburn, board rash, jelly and coral stings.

Made from post-consumer bottles AND old textiles through our Take-Back Program. We collect your old clothes, put them in a wood chipper (joking…kinda), and convert them into fiber, then fabric, then back into brand new clothing. Because textile waste comes in different colors, the resulting recycled fiber ends up looking brown, like a child finger-painting with ALL the colors at once kind of brown. Yuk! To fix this mess, the fibers are dyed black during the recycling process.

    1. UPF 50+ sun protection (max rating achievable)
    2. Large, streamlined pockets on the side of both legs for your phone, wallet, keys, a can of beer etc.
    3. Fibers mechanically engineered for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability
    4. Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery
    5. Tag-less, elastic waistband with rot, mildew, and abrasion resistant paracord drawstring tie (tensile strength of >200 lbs)
    6. Corrosion-free brass eyelets
    7. Double-layered "man-bits" panel for added modesty
    8. 100% chlorine, sun, saltwater and sunscreen resistant
    9. Raw hem and internally stitched bar-tacks allow for customizable leg length. Cut to your height if needed, learn how here.

Apparel that supports textile recycling

According to the EPA, 87% of apparel textiles are not recycled annually in the United States, meaning millions of tons of old clothes are piled into landfills every year. While recycling infrastructure exists for things like plastic bottles and aluminum cans, textile recycling is far less developed and accessible. This is a missed opportunity because the raw materials within some kinds of clothing (like ours!) can be used to create entirely new fabric, as long as it’s done carefully. By purchasing products made from recycled textiles, you are financially supporting the infrastructure that enables recycling to happen and signaling to manufacturers that you value circularity.

In the world of environmentally responsible fabrics, we think there are two clear leaders from an end-of-life perspective: those that are entirely made from natural fibers, and those made entirely of synthetic fibers. 100% natural fabrics like organic cotton are beneficial because they are biodegradable and recyclable, while 100% synthetic fabrics are beneficial because they are recyclable. Fabrics that blend natural and synthetic fibers together are not currently biodegradable or recyclable with today’s technology, which is why we don’t make them.

Fit’s good

Fits better than the medium not so tight

High quality, good fit, comfortable

The construction is done well - strong stiches, comfortable fit in waist, seat, and legs. Fabric is strong and has good elasticity, but doesn't catch on my skin like microfiber does. Fit was as advertised - Waterlust's fit chart was accurate for me. I am 5'10", 235 lb male, and purchased XL size per the chart. I'm planning to wear these under a shorty wetsuit as sun protection for my legs while snorkeling.

We just right to dive in in Roatan

Tried them out for the first time on our dives this week in Roatan. I had actually just said “my pants were exactly what I wanted” before I read your email. Usually wear a one piece skin but like the pants as a separate even better.

Comfy

Seems stretchier than my other whale Shark and Tiger Shark leggings which take effort to remove them off my legs. The new black ones I just got slide right off and are easier to pull off my legs.

Comfy swim leggings!

These fit & feel great, they will significantly reduce the amount of sunscreen my husband will need to do swimming and snorkeling and really any outdoor activity.
